    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- BSDi announced today the
 immediate availability of BSD/OS Version 4.2 Internet Server Edition. The
 latest BSD/OS release supports Java 2 Standard Edition and incorporates the
 KAME IPv6 and IPsec implementations.
     The Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE) and Java Development Kit (JDK) are
 included in BSD/OS 4.2 to develop and deploy 100% Pure(TM) Java servlets and
 applications.  IPv6 and IPsec (for both IPv4 and IPv6) implementations from
 the KAME Project represent an open industry-standard effort of seven companies
 that contribute regularly to BSD development.
     Other new features include VLAN (802.1Q, 802.3AC), wireless Ethernet
 802.11 (Aironet/WaveLAN), new sound drivers, additional RAID support (AMI
 MegaRAID, Compaq), Linux Application Platform (LAP) support updated to support
 RedHat Linux 6.2, and FAT32 support for accessing the hard disk used by the
 Windows operating system in dual-boot configurations.
     "A single Web server powered by BSD/OS Internet Server Edition, can easily
 handle tens of millions of hits per day," said Mark Garver, Group Executive
 for BSDi's Internet Systems Division. "With BSDi, Internet service providers,
 Web hosts and enterprises can set up Web farms with up to thousands of virtual
 Web sites on a single machine, complete with their own distinct Web and Email
 domains. Most importantly, our customers boast that their BSDi production
 servers run for years with zero downtime."
     BSDi's BSD/OS Internet Server Edition is an all-in-one Internet server
 operating system that integrates a variety of Internet and Web server
 applications. These packages include the popular Apache Web server, Sendmail
 E-mail software, Squid caching http Web proxy and accelerator, Email (SMTP,
 POP3), TCP/IP, SLIP and PPP, multilink PPP, PAP and CHAP support, file
 transfers (FTP), NFS, DNS, USENET News (INN) and X11 servers and clients.
     BSDi's shrink-wrapped Internet Server Edition is built on the reliable,
 secure and scalable BSD/OS operating system and Internet networking
 technologies. IP rate control enables network administrators to manage the
 bandwidth consumed by IP traffic leaving the server and to allocate network
 bandwidth to each hosted Web site. Linux Application Platform (LAP) Support
 supports Linux applications and services. The intuitive KDE graphical user
 interface, the easy-to-use Metro-X Server, and Xfree86 X Server 4.0 are
 included. Also included is robust, high-performance core functionality for
 symmetrical multiprocessor (SMP) server platforms. Support for DES encryption
 and IPsec allows users to cost-effectively integrate virtual private networks
 (VPNs) and industry-standard security conventions.
 
     Pricing and Availability
     BSD/OS 4.2 Internet Server Edition is available immediately for Intel and
 SPARC processor systems at a suggested retail price of $995.00. Source code
 licenses are also available.
